Seby läge and Gammalsbyören

Seby läge, in birding circuits more known as Sebybadet (Seby bath), accessible by turning east towards the sea from the east main road 500 meters north of the road between Torngård and Södra Möckleby.

It is a great place to watch the migrating birds, and a walk south to Gammalsbyörens wetlands and sand banks can provide an impressive list of wet meadow species, particularly during the summer and early fall when many waders rest here.

Later in the fall, especially when the wind is easterly and the migrating sea birds often flies past near the beach, will the cabanas provide a welcome windbreak for birding.
